Post 06 WRX Check Engine and Flashing "Cruise"

I have just recently purchased my 06 WRX it has about 94,000 miles. Today I was on the freeway going 65 and holding my speed with cruise control. I hit a small bump and came to realize that check engine light had came on also the "Cruise" light began to flash so I tried to get the cruise control to work again, but no luck. The car is all stock except the exhaust I'm not even sure what style it has on it, I just passed the DEQ test yesterday. Anyone have any ideas what I can try and do to fix this? once I get the codes I can post them but as of right now I do not have them.

You need to get the code read and then reset the ECU.

Go to PepBoys, Advanced Auto, Auto Zone, etc. and have them pull the code. It will most likely be some generic P0XXX, write it down (to Google it later), then have them reset it. If your car is not running funky it's probably something you can ignore. I popped a cat efficiency code once or twice, most likely due to bad gas. Didn't come on until I was just cruising along after going through about half the tank.
